Trial Information

Evaluation of Three Hour Infusion of Paclitaxel Plus Cisplatin and 5-Fluorouracil in Patients With Advanced or Recurrent Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN)


OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the overall survival of patients with metastatic or recurrent squamous cell
carcinoma of the head and neck treated with paclitaxel, cisplatin, and fluorouracil.

- Determine response (unconfirmed, confirmed, complete, and partial) and time to
treatment failure in patients with measurable disease treated with this regimen.

- Determine the toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours followed by cisplatin IV over 30
minutes on day 1 and fluorouracil IV over 24 hours on days 1-4. Courses repeat every 21 days
in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving complete
response (CR) receive 3 additional courses beyond CR.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months for 2 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 65 patients will be accrued for this study within 12 months.
